Hans Fischerkoesen

Der Schneemann

We screened Hans Fischerkoesen’s DER SCHNEEMANN (The Snowman) from 1944 for the first time in 1956. Often dubbed the ”German Walt Disney”, Fischerkoesen worked under Hitler, who hoped to build an animation industry rivalling America’s. This film is a product of that period in Fischerkoesen’s career, and indeed one can recognise Disney’s influence on Fischerkoesen in the titular character’s expressively animated physicality.
